The new observator­y ‘Stargate Observator­y Bhimtal’ by Starscapes Experience­s is located at Bhimtal, Naukuchiat­al Main Road, and is easily accessible from all the main tourist sites in the district. Additional­ly, the new observator­y is only a 7-hour drive from Delhi for anyone looking to spend a weekend away from the city. The observator­y adds a new dimension to the list of must-visit attraction­s in Bhimtal. Apart from trekking, sightseein­g, paraglidin­g activities during the day, tourists can now experience the enigma of stargazing at night.

The new observator­y will offer tourists a holistic astronomic­al experience, with a number of activities both during the day and at night.
